Queer Faith, Policy, and Liberation


The Queer Faith, Policy & Liberation Cohort is a collaborative learning experience designed for students and community members to develop tools for Queer Liberation. The cohort examines the systemic impacts of faith and policy on Queer lives and focuses on building a liberatory future through centering people, relationships, connection and imagination. Over 5 months of meetings, workshops, and retreats, cohort members explore how religion and spirituality shape policy, models of organizing creating change, and the importance of culture change for queer liberation. The cohort consists of 12-15 graduate students in the Middle Tennessee area who meet regularly to ask questions, share their gifts, build relationships, and learn from community activists. Past speakers have included representatives from SoulForceTennessee Equality Project, and Faith Matters Network. It is co-facilitated by two Carpenter Fellows chosen from previous cohorts.  Email Rachel Heath for more information.
